Code Of Conduct

Enrollment at SDA Inter College carries with it obligations and responsibilities, in regard to proper conduct, at all times and in all places. The student is expected to maintain the standards as expected by the school so long as he/she enjoys the privilege of being a student. Any student who enjoys the privileges of the school but does not accept and discharge freely the responsibilities that go with the privileges, and who is not in harmony with the aims, objectives and standards of the school and is unwilling to observe its rules and regulations, will not be knowingly admitted or retained.
Because personal influence is a great power, a student is liable for dismissal if he/she is detrimental to his/her associates or the school as a whole. The school does not knowingly admit or retain a student who practices any of the following:

  • Drinking liquor or possessing it, or making it accessible to others, or allowing its use in one’s room.
  • Using any of the harmful drugs, or possessing it, or making it accessible to others, or allowing its use in one’s room.
  • Use of pan or tobacco in any form or possessing it, or making it accessible to others, or allowing its use in one’s room.

Students are expected to abstain from gambling, from the use of profane language, from the reading of pernicious literature, from attending or participating in entertainment not approved by the school, from wearing unbecoming attire, and from clandestine meeting with the opposite sex.

Any unruly, boisterous behavior on the part of a student is looked upon with strong disapproval. Students are to maintain proper decorum at all functions of the school, in the classroom and on the campus. Students are expected to be properly and appropriately dressed and are to be neat, tidy and clean. The student is expected to have wholesome and positive attitude and influence. If the school is convinced that student is constantly showing a negative attitude, exerting an unwholesome influence, and refusing to accept counsel and advice, such a student may be asked to withdraw from the school. This is because the school feels that it is not able to help such a student to develop in harmony with its aim and objectives, while at the same time the student is exerting a harmful influence on others. Seventh-day Adventist Inter College is a co-educational institution. Boys and girls are expected to conduct themselves in the classroom, in the cafeteria, in the assembly hall, and on the campus in a proper and decent manner with due regard to the cultural standards of the school.

The conduct of a student toward the opposite sex must be above reproach and in conformity with the best traditions of the society.
